Michigan and Ohio State have usually recruited better than their conference rivals, but they have taken their dominance to new levels in the last two seasons.
As it should be.
Couldnt ask for anything better IMO.
Honestly, I'm surprised Nebraska and MSU are having so much trouble recruiting.
If you ask SpartanRocky MSU is recruiting better than it has in a long time.
It is only going to get worse for them.

But this is Sparty logic. Myopic in is purest sense. I think I am 2x better, but the world is now 5x better than I was before it started.
SpartanRocky is a good poster.
Yeah, it's pretty obvious. If the other teams are going to be competitive, they'll have to bridge the gap with coaching and player development.
SpartanRocky is a cool poster, and he's right. MSU has been recruiting better than normal, however it's still not at the same caliber as Michigan and OSU at this point.
If it weren't for the reductions, PSU and O'Brien have been recruiting awesome as well. A lot of people are saying that the new divisions in 2014 will have PSU, OSU, and UM in the same division and I really think those will be the top 3 teams in the Big Ten over the next 10 or so years (as long as BOB stays)
BOB's future will depend on his next two years...If he does great, I think he's gone to the NFL...IF he does ok, I think he can be at PSU for a long time..If he does poorly, it will be what was expected due to the sanctions. So he's in a great position career wise. No pressure and auditioning for the NFL.
Put it this way...I don't think you could take an all star roster of the other ten teams in the conference and create one class that is better than osu or Michigan's class individually. Spread that out over a four year period and scheming or coaching up ain't gonna stand a chance vs the big 2.
On a side note, I met Pat Fitzgerald today. He is a heck of a nice guy. What he has done with the wildcats is good for the B1G. That inspired me look at their recent recruiting classes And realize just how awesome Meyer and hoke Are doing right now.
Clearly the Big 2 are out recruiting the rest of the conference combined. It is a boat race.
Wrote that before I read your post hotsauce, my fault.
Yeah, but that's how it goes. As long as BOB stays (always key words), with him and Hackenberg around, and the S&C program, I'm confident PSU will be competitive with the middle tier of teams (Wisconsin, Nebraska, MSU). Being competitive with OSU and Michigan is another matter.
I really like BOB as a coach, but the guy is working with a deck stacked against him. If he sticks around long enough to see the light at the end of the tunnel, I'd expect him to do good things.

Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Spartan logic is that all of Michigan's commits are overrated and all of MSU's commits are underrated.
Nebraska will be doing back flips if this happens and sadly it's the most logical way to do it. Which is fine by me since we already have to play you guys and psu every year anyhow but those would be some LOPSIDED divisions. Good article OP
Eh, it'll just be like the SEC West.
